1. How can I check mail delivery is success when using other mail server inside ISP?
I have two general users, one uses other mail server and the other ISP's mail server.
My question is how do I setup sendmail for using other mail server. Currently, I use Mutt as mail client and Mutt calls sendmail as the MTA. The sendmail doesn't run as a daemon.
The Linux box I use is inside a Linux router which do IP mascerading for sharing the cable modem. :)
ISP's mail server: mail.home.com (support POP3 and SMTP server)
other mail server: mail.company.com (support POP3, IMAP and SMTP server)
I got some weird stuff about sending e-mail. The problem is e-mail delivery takes too long and sometimes, the outgoing mails seem to disappear. Sometimes, I get complaint from others "Why don't send e-mail?" even though I replied to them days ago.
So, I sent test mails yesterday to my e-mail address in mail.company.com (it's POP3, IMAP support). The real mail server name is different though. I've not yet received e-mail from the sender,especially from me. Is it possible to receive e-mails after waiting hours?
The ISP that I use provides POP3 mail server, mail.home.com.
Do I have to put mail.home.com as a relay mail server in /etc/sendmail.cf?
The below is the current relay host setting in sendmail.cf file.
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
I've untouched /etc/sendmail.cf because mail receiving and sending was just fine using the Mutt. Furthermore, the sendmail already installed by the Linux distribution, called MIZI Linux,I use.
I used to check the outgoing mails putting my e-mail address at Bcc or CC field when I sent e-mail. Is there any method to check mail delivery?
And, if the outgoing mail disappeared how can I solve it at least in my part, not the mail server?
Thanks in advance,
